FL Technics, a global provider of tailor-made aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul services, is further expanding its client base in Europe and Asia by signing a Base Maintenance agreement with a Turkish low-cost carrier Pegasus Airlines. Under the agreement, FL Technics will provide Base Maintenance support for the carrier’s Boeing 737 NGs.
Pegasus Airlines, the second largest carrier in Turkey, has already delivered its first Boeing 737-800 aircraft to FL Technics’ base maintenance facilities at Kaunas International Airport, Lithuania. The aircraft will undergo a comprehensive set of maintenance works under a 6 year C-Check program, including structure and composite repairs, NDT, technical defect rectification, etc.
Additional aircraft will reach FL Technics’ Kaunas MRO base in the nearest future. All maintenance works for the first group of aircraft are expected to be concluded by May 2015 in order for Pegasus Airlines to be fully prepared for the upcoming summer season.
“It is an exceptional joy to win the trust of a new customer, particularly from such a fast growing market as Turkey. We are delighted that Pegasus Airlines have entrusted us with the support of their actively developing fleet. Since we have reached a mutual understanding concerning the carrier’s aircraft support in the second half of the year as well, we certainly hope that the new cooperation will eventually develop to a long-standing and comprehensive partnership between our companies,” comments Zilvinas Lapinskas, the CEO of FL Technics.
